I bought a pair when they first came out. This was before they instituted a 180-pound rider weight limit. I weigh just over 190. The front wheel has been just great. However, the rear wheel (laced 32H, 14/15 spokes) won't stay in true. I even retensioned the entire wheel to see if I could improve things, but I couldn't. The hubs have been fine.

If you are relatively light and easy on wheels, they may not be bad. It's hard to find a lighter pair of clinchers (especially for the money).
